Summer FUN with Beachabella!



You've gotta love this cute "Beachabella" in her tiny little 'kini. Oh, how I wanna be her! :)

The background for this card was created using scraps leftover from my beach card sets last week. I cut the paper into squares and then pieced it together on the white cardstock folder. When that was done, I added a little doodling between the squares to coordinate with the doodling around Bella. I added tabs using the Stampin' Up! word window punch. Tag created with 1" Martha Stewart punch and 1-1/4 SU circle punch. ENJOY!

That has gotta to be one of my all time favorites! I love the paper and how you pieced it together each framed by the doodling. I love the tabs, the punch, the drawing of me, oops, maybe that isn't me, but everything else is PERFECT!!

That background is fabulous! I love how it *doesn't* look like quilting! (I really don't like quilting.) I'm definitely going to have to try that! And Beachabells is soooooooo cute! Nice job! :-)
